It’s birthday season. The next four months each have birthdays in my son’s family. It’s easy to celebrate. The grandkids love all sorts of things. As do the big kids. Sometimes there is a list. Sometimes not.
It’s not as though a Grandma would spoil the boys.
What other birthdays do we celebrate?
In my family (the siblings), it really varies. If they are on to grandkids themselves the siblings are SOL unless it’s one of those big numbers. This is a year for a big number for Mom. Her last big number 10 years ago involved a cruise of the Meditterranean with the youngest daughter.
How do we celebrate?
Well, it depends. (Not that answer again!) But it does.
So how do you celebrate when two second cousins have their 104th and 105th birthday?
A birthday parade.
Led by a sherriff’s car.
Cars decorated in birthday trimmings.
And a squad of Harleys.
Just a Saturday afternoon birthday parade
In Hills, Iowa.

Is it the harvest season?
Soybeans . . . OR corn . . .
Or the plowing that comes after?
Checking the weather
… rain? Did he say rain?
Or the thirty one days of fun?
Which of these match you?
For me, October is the month of birthdays . . .
To name just a few from the immediate family.
October is a month of 31 days packed with fun, football, and food as we meet and celebrate . . . every day!
